Elisabeth Kelan (Department of Management) and Rosalind Gill (Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries) have been successful in obtaining another Collaborative Studentship from the ESRC, to explore gender inequalities in work and organisations. The studentship, currently being advertised and with a start date of September 2013, is supported by ACCA and ESRC’s KISS-DTC (the Doctoral training Centre at King’s College London).
It will explore the disparity between the numbers of women entering the field of accountancy (50%) and their representation as senior members of the profession (21%), and examine the reasons for this.
This studentship is the second current success of this team in the Work and Organisation strand of KISS DTC.
Dr Kelan and Professor Gill are also supervising Scarlett Brown, who is funded by an ESRC Collaborative studentship in collaboration with Sapphire Partners and is examining processes of appointment to boards of FTSE350 companies from a gender perspective.
